Clayjars or anyone else that may have pics of where you ran the oil lines from or that could tell me where I would very much appreciate it .

I also had some weird things going on today, every time I made a hard left turn the bike would cut off until I straightened her up again. Any suggestions?

make sure the manual decomp cable isnt fouling on something.

where to run the oil lines from is very obvious, theres a steel line coming from under the frame where the dipstick is, plumb the cooler into that then into where the same line goes into the oil pump is on the right side of the engine. thats it.

because they werent built with one orignally there isnt really a perfect spot to put it, mine is on the frame, so i had to cut the guard back to fit it. thats only because i didnt wanto have to deal with oil lines that would have go up past the steering head and move around.

Oil Cooler

Badweather,

If you read Zombies thread about reviving his XL600, you will find all sorts of info including these pictures of plumbing the oil cooler:

Here are the pics from that thread...

Another Revival

I picked up an '85 XL600 a couple of weeks ago as a project. The engine had the common problem of worn lobes and rocker arms. The PO had the engine out of the frame and in pieces so I figure while I'm at it I would like to repaint the frame. I'm running into a problem taking everything off that I was hoping I could get some suggestions with.

There's a nut on the airbox assembly that won't come out. I can feel the nut turning in the plastic behind it. There's no way that I can see to get behind it and hold the nut because it's completely enclosed. Is there a way to split the box? I don't see it if there is.

Any one have any suggestions?

Oh, and this project is a first for me. So in the response feel free to talk to me like I'm an idiot. Because well.....I am!

Sawzall!

Seriously, I have one on my airbox that does the same thing as yours. Can't think of anything to hold that nut still.

Thumb try this

Best way is to drill the head off the bolt ,then you can remove the air box & bond a new nut in

Drill It

+1 on Drilling the head off.

Once the airbox is free then you can attempt to fix the stuck blot shank.

We have a winner! Wqterscm, the decomp cable was binding when I made a hard left causing the bike to shut down, shouldn't have hurt anything right?
I was adjusting my controls a few days ago, must have moved it too far out.
On another note, can the emissions cannister be removed?

I used a dremel when that happened to me. I have yet to fix it. I'll probably find some similar filler plastic and melt it in with a torch until there is a block of plastic. Then I'll drill a nice hole and insert a heated, knurled threaded tube. Still not sure where I'll find that. I've got carb tuning higher on my priorities.

So while organizing my bench for when my parts get here
I came across some gaskets from the motor. It seems that the valve cover gasket is aluminum or tin.
Is this OEM?
It looks to be in great shape and wonder if I can re-use it.
The cylinder gasket looks tin also and in good shape but I have one on order.
Thanks.

Yes you can reuse it. it is actually a precise shim. Use a thin bead of RTV on it or use copper coat spray. I have had my motor out about 5 times now and done both rtv and copper coat with no issues. The head gasket should be replaced.

2 things happened today:

tacho stopped working, oil has been leaking out of where it goes into the head for ages so i dont know if its the tacho cable or the mechanism itself. i hope not the latter.

also i realised that a strange clinging noise when going over speed bumps is not the chain guard hitting the chain. it sounds like 2 pieces of metal banging together and i think it might be the broken subframem but its not broken in such a way that that noise might be possible...........
